Police: Teens rob Joliet gas station

JOLIET – Four teens used a gun to rob a Joliet gas station Sunday.

No one was injured in the holdup, which occurred about 2:40 p.m. at the BP Amoco at 1411 Riverboat Center Drive.

Police Chief Brian Benton said four suspects who appeared to be in their early teens entered the store and announced the robbery.

"A witness and a clerk attempted to physically stop one of the suspects when that suspect pulled out a long handgun," Benton said.

After taking cash, the suspects fled in a silver Toyota with Illinois license plate Q204169.

Benton said the Toyota may have been related to an earlier carjacking in Chicago. It was last seen heading east on Interstate 80 past Larkin Avenue.

Deputy Chief Al Roechner said Monday evening that Joliet police had not linked Sunday's robbery to two Saturday robberies in Wilmington Township and Dwight but were still investigating the possibility of a connection.
